Fircroft’s continuous growth has been highlighted by the opening of new offices around the globe. A recent addition includes the opening of the Brazilian office
, located in the business district of Rio de Janeiro. The new office is expected to capitalize on Brazil’s enormous growth within the Oil & Gas industry in recent years. The discovery of an oil field the size of Florida in the Atlantic Ocean in 2007 signaled Brazil's emergence as a major energy player, and has already made oil one of Brazil's top exports.
With additional support from Fircroft’s Houston office, the new Brazilian operation is signalling exciting prospects for Fircroft. “This is a new challenge, and I’m keen to begin working with super oil majors operating out of Brazil. The Oil & Gas sector is booming here, and Fircroft’s reputation and brand within the industry means we are well placed to take advantage of this growth”, said Marco André Vandelli Guanaes, Branch Manager of the new office.
Paul Ratcliffe, Regional Director USA, said: "We continue to expand our horizons and the launch of our Brazilian operation signifies another major investment from Fircroft. Having a strategic presence in South America will further strengthen our position whilst enabling us to meet the continued expectations of our clients. Over the next five years we are going to witness a huge growth in this region led by Brazil and I feel we are positioned well to maximise the opportunity."
